"Faith, Family, & Ducks"

Jambalaya.  Sweet Tea in a Mason Jar.  
Banana Pudding Cupcakes garnished with 
a few beards and wise words from Phil & Si...
What do you get when you throw all this together?

The perfect fun family night with a Miss Kay spin on cookin'.
And a great way to kick off the new season of Duck Dynasty:)

I was a little late catching on to this show,
but once Cade and I actually allowed ourselves to watch it:
We were hooked!

I can quote Silas Robertson lines all day long!
But...I am pretty terrible at impersonations.

It's the perfect family show.
Especially if your from the South...

Nothing better than family, good grub, and a good TV show to enjoy together.

And do you even have to ask?
Yes.  Even Penny had to join in on the Dynasty celebration...
She snuck up on the TABLE and took a big lick out of her own Banana Pudding Cupcake!

And she swiped my favorite cupcake too!

Guess this just mean's our WHOLE family is "Happy, Happy, Happy."
